You And Your Bestie Can Hang Out At These Pet Friendly Cafes In Chennai

Lavanya posted on 10 March

Our pets are our best friends, which is why it’s disappointing that we can’t always bring them with us when we want to get a cup of coffee or meet with friends. But all hope is not lost – here are five cafés in Chennai that are welcoming of not only you, but also your furry friends! Do make note that none of these cafes actually serve dog food – but all of them accommodate requests for pet friendly human food.

Wild Garden Café at Amethyst

The Wild Garden Café is probably the first café in Chennai that allowed pets on to their property. The café is lush with greenery and plants, and even has a garden complete with a lotus pond that pets will love walking through.

The Farm, OMR

If you and your pet are up for a drive during the weekend, The Farm is where you should go! The Farm, is literally a farm that has been converted into a restaurant and cafe. The Farm has a great deal of open space that your pet will enjoy exploring, and given the number of cows, buffaloes and other animals that live there, he/she might even make new besties! If you let the staff know that you’re bringing a pet in advance, they will even suggest activities to keep your pet occupied.

Sandy's Chocolate Laboratory

The Teynampet branch of Sandy’s Chocolate Lab has outdoor seating for people who want to bring in their pets. The staff there are both friendly and familiar with animals, so rest assured that your pet will feel very welcomed. Sandy’s is open all day, but the seating area can get hot during the afternoons, so we recommend you visit in the evenings, when the weather is pleasant.

Ashvita Bistro

Ashvita Bistro is another café that allows you to bring your pets along while you have a cup {or three} of coffee. Be warned though, while they are pet friendly, the café is a little small, so their outdoor seating is limited — this isn’t a problem for small pets, but if you have a slightly larger dog, like say a Labrador, it might not be the most convenient seating arrangement.

Chamiers Café

Most of us know Chamiers Café as a gorgeous old world café that is completely indoors. However, they do have outdoor seating at the back that is pet friendly. If you want to shop in the little boutiques that the café houses, though, you’ll have to leave your dog with a friend.

Twisty Tails

Twisty Tails is housed in a restored 50-year-old bungalow and is now apparently one of Chennai’s first exclusive cafes for doggos and their humans. The concept? Go on a date with your dog! You’ll even be greeted by the eight, adorable resident Havanese cuddle pups. The place is converted into three key areas — there’s an exclusive Puppy Love space dedicated to anyone who wants to have some snuggle time with the resident pooches {perfect if you’ve never had a pup of your own and always wanted to get in on some lovin’}. The Dog Café, which is undergoing some work now, will soon whip up food for your pooches and you. {You can dine while your pups eat and play around you.} And the Resto-Café is where pet parents or non-pet parents can grab some grub. We ruff this!
